Not Just P-Nuts!

09 June, 2015

Here at Cromer’s, we’re more than just peanut experts. We have also mastered the art of popping the tastiest and freshest popcorn with 25 flavor options, offering customizable cotton candy colors and flavors, a café filled with gourmet sandwiches and a coffee shop perfect to start your day or just a yummy treat.

However, we are more than just snacks, sandwiches and coffee. We also offer machine rentals, event catering and advertising specialties.

Cromer’s popcorn is popped daily so it is always fresh, just as the bright yellow bags say. If the popcorn is kept sealed, it can stay fresh for 6-8 weeks! Our popcorn is popped in coconut oil rather than the traditional canola oil. This gives your popcorn a healthier edge so you don’t feel guilty about indulging in your tasty snack!

Peanuts are boiled, packaged and sold daily. Along with our boiled peanuts, we offer many different styles of peanuts. Roasted, salted, no salt, new crop…you can find a delicious treat no matter what! If you’re in the mood for another crunchy snack, we also offer pistachios, cashews, peanut brittle and chocolate covered almonds.

Our café offers breakfast bagels and croissants, gourmet sandwiches and delicious coffee. The menu also offers daily specials from hot dogs to BLTs to shrimp and grits! We pride ourselves on never using frozen products. Meats, bread (the croissants are purchased from Crepes and Croissants) and coffee beans are all locally purchased. Our coffee is micro roasted right here in Columbia. Our barista has mastered the art of coffee and will always provide you with the most delicious drink. Try it once and you’re hooked. It is full of flavor and made with love. And in case you still aren’t convinced, Cromer’s offers free Wi-Fi, free parking and a comfy couch to relax on.

Are you planning a party or celebration? We have the supplies for you! Balloons (sold in packs or we can blow them up for you), streamers, tablecloths, napkins, plates and so much more!

To kick your party up a notch, you can rent sno-kone machines, poppers and cotton candy machines. The steps are simple and easy to follow and your guests are sure to be impressed.

If you want to leave the popping and sno-kones to us or want funnel cakes or boiled peanuts, we would be glad to come to you and cater your event. We are unlike your traditional catering company, but with years of fair and carnival experience, we know how to make your event a tasty success!

Cromer’s is known for many things, but something a lot of people don’t know is that we offer extensive Advertising Specialties. With over 800,000 customizable products ranging from toilet paper to t-shirts to koozies, let Cromer’s help you grow your business.

Want to see it for yourself? Watch this video and then stop by our store located at 1700 Huger Street, Columbia, SC. 

 

Cromer's Cafe- serving the Guaranteed Worst coffee in Columbia, SC

26 May, 2015

Cromer's proudly serves Turtle Creek Coffee in our cafe. Turtle Creek Coffee is a local coffee roasting company founded by Mick Carnett.
Carnett began roasting coffee after moving back to South Carolina from the west coast. Missing the coffee he enjoyed on the other side of the country, he began to make his own. Carnett began to roast for his personal consumption, and soon his friends and family wanted coffee too. This began Carnett's business in coffee roasting. 
Watch the video below to find out about Cromer's Cafe and all of the delicious drinks we have to offer. 

Cromer's loves the Gamecocks

20 November, 2014

When you think of Columbia, most of the time you think of the University of South Carolina and their beloved Gamecocks, at least we do! On Saturdays we love to be right by the stadium witnessing as the city becomes practically gridlocked with traffic from near and far coming to watch the Gamecocks dominate the football field.

 Cromer’s has been supporting the Gamecocks for as long as we have been around, but most recently, we support them from right outside the stadium at Gamecock Walk.

Every home game, Cromer’s is out tailgating with funnel cakes, corn dogs, fresh squeezed lemonade, sno-kones when its hot and hot chocolate when its cold and of course, our famous boiled peanuts. The Cromer’s team gets up bright and early to head out to the village to set up their tailgate. Fans from near and far (and even from opposing teams) stop by to see what Cromer’s is all about and always leave with a smile on their faces. No matter how bad the season is, Cromer’s will always be out there supporting the Gamecocks.

You can always find the Cromer’s tailgate team under the big red tent right inside Gamecock Village with all your favorite goodies. In honor of the last home football game of this season this Saturday at 12 pm against South Alabama, be sure to stop by and cheer on the Gamecocks like a true Columbian. We will be there bright and early ready for you all!
